The company Transfera
has placed among the leading logistics companies in Serbia in only three years. Financial indicators, the number of employees and their offices nominate them for the fastest growing company in the logistics market in Serbia.
Dusko Radovic, CEO of Transfera, says in his interview for eKapija that the results made in the past three years are due to the implementation of modern technologies and the policy of employing young engineers.
Radovic also says that they have big plans for the coming period and announced the opening of new offices, as well as the construction of a logistics center.eKapija: What have Transfera`s results been in the past period?
– Transfera started operating in 2013. Our operating income at the end of 2016 amounts to EUR 14.5 million, our customs warranty is close to EUR 2 million, we have more than a hundred employees, twelve offices in Serbia, forty-five young engineers and a large network of subcontractors. I`m free to say that our exponential growth has brought us into the position of a recognizable company in the logistics market and a reliable partner. Many are surprised by how quickly Transfera has managed to build that kind of image. I`d like like to quote a basketball coach who once said – It`s all normal. To us at at Transfera, it really is. The growth didn`t occur by itself, but as a result of the effort and the work of each Transfera employee. It`s more important to us to keep improving and building the company through the synergy of our employees than what our financial results are. This synergy is our greatest success.
eKapija: Which results have led to such a large growth?
– It`s certainly down to the people, the standards we operate by, as well as the investments. In choosing our work force, we`ve managed to establish a balance between young and energetic people and experts with great knowledge and experience. I`d like to point out that a recognizable and strong team has brought new strength and service quality to our clients and contributed to our growth. On the other hand, we`ve brought our operations in line with the standards ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001, which entail honoring regulations, reliability of services, availability and quickness of response... We have invested in the education of our employees, in opening offices throughout Serbia, as well as in an integrated information system. Our software solution Trans2Open is compatible with various platforms, such as: EDI, SKYTRACK and WMS – electronic data exchange, automatized process of data sharing with the software solutions of commercial banks etc. A quicker flow of information within our company means the improvement of our services as well and, finally, a greater satisfaction of our clients. This is why investing in development is our permanent orientation.eKapija: You highlight your team as your greatest strength. How many people do you employ? What is the employee structure like?
